Blizzard Update - 4:30pm

4:30pm and all's well. Snow continues to fall, and the wind has picked up a little bit, but nothing so far like the gusts they said we would get. Which isn't to say they won't come later. I went out onto the deck with a shovel for just a few minutes to see how heavy the snow was, and the answer is that it is wetter and therefore heavier than last weekend's. It will be hard shovelling.

With very low visibility, it is getting dark early. The pines in the back of our yard look beaten down but seem to be hanging in. I can't tell if any of these sagging branches have broken; I'm afraid that with all that weight some must have cracked. Time will tell.

More pictures will have to wait for the morning.
